Thank you for your clinical post and
question. This is a common concern of
first time naïve Botox injectable patients.
The presumption, that is a good one, never repeated weakening of the
muscle result in inability for that muscles to ever function. Botox is a very safe protein injected into
muscles of unwanted facial animation. It
results in a blockade of that muscles ability to contract for a period of 3-6
months. The muscles that are traded are
frown lines, Crow’s Feet, horizontal forehead worry lines, lip lines and
necklace lines. The fortunate or
unfortunate fact with Botox is once Botox is no longer used and chemical
blockade of the unwanted muscle has ceased, the muscle returns to normal
activity. This can be after 10 years of
consistent Botox use or 3 months. Rest
assured that this chemical blockade which is a determination of the signal to
frown and not central acts completely unlike a stroke, rather central methods
for modified muscle function and once the Botox is not being used your facial
muscles return to their normal expressive state.
